I'm sorry I didn't write a proper post at the proper time last week - but it was for a good reason. I've had a birthday, and have been busy organising nice things to do and doing the nice things other lovely people have organised for me. And I've enjoyed it all, because a week ago I realised I was feeling Much Better. I don't know why, any more than I knew exactly why I felt so awful before, but I think it's partly because I wrote about it here (and got lovely messages back), and spoke about it to a few good friends.
          Anyway, it was very timely - I wanted to enjoy my birthday, and I did. And - I've now managed to get my iPad working properly in the ways I want it to work, with only one phone call to the help desk :) So I'm quite proud of myself. I know everyone under 20 can do this stuff standing on their head, but for me and my peers, it's another story. I finished the first (free) volume of In Search of Lost Time, and decided I'd give myself a birthday present: the Kindle edition of the whole series, over 2000 pages. It cost $2.99. So now I can look forward every evening to going to bed with Marcel.


  1. A belated happy birthday Anne! So glad you are feeling a bit better.

  2. Very impressive that you organised nice things to do for your birthday Anne, and also that other friends had lovely surprises for you too to make the day special, nice work:) I am following your introduction to ipod usage with great interest, almost convinced I think!.

  3. Happy birthday Anne, and it's wonderful to hear of new pleasures flowing into your life.
